0 1


LOWELL — To steal a phrase used to describe the Rose Bowl, the Chelmsford-Billerica battle Thursday is ‘The Granddaddy of Them All’ when it comes to Thanksgiving Day football games.

Simonian Stadium at Chelmsford High will be the place to be at 10 a.m. when the host Lions (8-2) and Indians (9-1) clash.

But there are other intriguing matchups:

Winnacunnet at Lowell: Due to a hazing scandal, Haverhill forfeited its annual game against Lowell. Red Raiders AD Dave Lezenski quickly made some phone calls and Winnacunnet, located in Hampton, N.H., agreed to make the drive south.

Arlington Catholic at Shawsheen: The host Rams are 11-0 and headed to the Division 5 Super Bowl on Dec. 2 at Gillette Stadium. Yeah, Al Costabile & Co. would love to stay undefeated, but at what cost? Staying healthy for the state championship game takes precedence.

Lowell Catholic at Greater Lowell: One of three Wednesday night battles (Nashoba Tech at Monty Tech, Assabet Valley at North Middlesex), this will an interesting game under the lights in Tyngsboro. The last time out, Lowell Catholic fell in the Division 8 playoffs to KIPP Academy, which will play for a state title at Gillette. How motivated will the Crusaders be?

Acton-Boxboro at Westford: This was a lopsided rivalry when Acton-Boxboro was one of the top programs in the state. But the Ghosts won 38-21 last year and Anthony Rudiman & Westford (6-4) will be huge favorites on its home field over A-B (1-9), losers of nine straight.

Groton-Dunstable at Tyngsboro: Hope the scoreboard operator gets a good sleep Wednesday night. These teams can score, as Groton-Dunstable (7-3) and star running back Nate Bushnell have scored 278 points, while quarterback Bryce Goulet and Tyngsboro (4-6) have won two straight and tallied 234 points this fall.
